- 24 very thin slices white bread
- Refrigerated butter-flavored spray*
- 6 to 8 unpeeled garlic cloves
- 1 tablespoon olive or canola oil
- 1 package (8 ounces) reduced-fat cream cheese
- 2 tablespoons butter or stick margarine
- 2 teaspoons minced chives

- Cut each slice of bread with a 2-in. round cookie cutter. Spritz one side of each bread round with butter-flavored spray; press spritzed side up into miniature muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 10-15 minutes or until golden.
- Place garlic cloves on a piece of aluminum foil. Pour oil over garlic; fold foil around garlic and seal tightly. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until garlic is very soft. When garlic is cool, remove from skins and mash.
